Bodhi Linux incredibly good, lightweight, very minimal Ubuntu derivative.

Bodhi Linux is an Ubuntu-based distribution for the desktop featuring the elegant and lightweight Enlightenment window manager.

The project, which integrates and pre-configures the very latest builds of Enlightenment directly from the project's development repository, offers modularity, high level of customisation, and choice of themes.

The default Bodhi system is light -- the only pre-installed applications are Midori, LXTerminal, PCManFM, Leafpad and Synaptic -- but more software is available via Bodhi Software Center, a web-based software installation tool.

Introduction to bod Files.

The current .bods are fairly hackish package up of a whole bunch of .deb files. Jeff Hoogland
If one downloads a bod file and opens it in a text editor you will notice that it appears to be a shell script with some binary code attached to the end of it. That is exactly what a bod file is, a shell script with a self-extracting archive attached which executes an installation script contained within the archive. In this way it is comparable to self extracting Zip files which you may be familiar with if you have ever installed much software in Windows. You will also notice if you have examined a bod file the line:

# This script was generated using Makeself 2.1.5
This provides us with a clue as how a bod file is created. Makeself is a program which

is a small shell script that generates a self-extractable tar.gz archive from a directory. The resulting file appears as a shell script (many of those have a .run suffix), and can be launched as is. The archive will then uncompress itself to a temporary directory and an optional arbitrary command will be executed (for example an installation script). This is pretty similar to archives generated with WinZip Self-Extractor in the Windows world. Makeself archives also include checksums for integrity self-validation (CRC and/or MD5 checksums).

Updates (via Distrowatch):

Bodhi Linux Jeff Hoogland has announced the release of Bodhi Linux 1.2.0, an Ubuntu-based distribution featuring the latest development build of the Enlightenment 17 desktop: "20,000 forum posts and over 100,000 downloads later the Bodhi team and I are proud to announce our second point release - Bodhi Linux 1.2.0. Current Bodhi users can easily update their system to this latest release. This release is largely for keeping packages up to date, so the following are the core system packages that have been updated for this release: Linux kernel 3.0, Enlightenment built from SVN on 2011-09-06, Midori 0.4.0. There is more to this release than just packages though. Our document team has been working furiously to improve our documentation, both on our Wiki and our locally installed pages. Our recently published 'Bodhi Guide to Enlightenment' is also now stored locally for offline use in the Midori web browser."
